East High School’s girls basketball team had an amazing season this year. They trained hard, they put everything they had into this sport getting ready for this season. East’s regular seasons record was better than ever, with 23 wins and only 2 losses. They ranked 3rd in Utah right next to Fremont (2nd) and Salem Hills (1st).Recently East has only won two games since 2014. Last year, Coach Junior Solovi came on board and led the team to 13 wins. Solovi and the other coaches didn’t do this for the money, but for the girls and they knew they needed to turn their season around. East took a 68-48 win in their first ever girls basketball State Championship against Timpview on Feb. 24, 2018. Coach Solovi stated, “I was definitely surprised by the run” and “ I thought the girls came out with extreme energy. I’m just proud of them.” When coach Solovi finished cutting the net, he was unaware that this was their first State champion win ever. “I didn’t even know that until after the game. Didn’t know that at all.” said Solovi. Liana Kaitu’u of the East Lady Leopards said, “ This will definitely go down in history and this will be a part of me forever.” This will be the most treasured and memorable season of all time.
